I watched my husband, Matt, pull up the Jeanette Gazette yesterday and then remark, “So Pops is still Tops?” (Referencing the title of my previous blog post, now nearly 8 weeks old.) As much as I love Pops, who is my endearing pops-in-law, he actually isn’t tops-of-mind anymore. For me, it’s Lola Fern Bennett. And that’s exactly why this blog has remained stagnant for nearly two months. Having a newborn in my arms has plummeted my productivity. My one-handed abilities are not tops. What I HAVE done lately is keep another human alive. I took her from Day One (see top photo) to 7.5 weeks old in this photo. She’s alive and kicking. And so am I. More blog posts to come soon.
